Carnivals and fairs are one of the most memorable events ever when you are a kid. We had our county fairgrounds right behind my house as a kid, and every year I could hear the rides going, and happy people having the time of their lives. I remember trying to sneak through the fence that separated the wooded area of my back yard and the fair grounds. I got in trouble more than a few times for sneaking out of the house and spending hours at the fair. These places are always full of life when the activities are going on. What they turn into when they become abandoned though, it’s quite a haunting sight. A photographer decided to sneak into the abandoned Bushkill Park. The pictures he took show a depressing, and very creepy fate for a place that used to provide so much joy.
Bushkill Park is located in Easton, Pennsylvania.
The park was closed back in 2007 as the result of flooding.
Without lights and people, this place is like a creepy old ghost town.
The park is actually over 100 years old.
That fact makes the park closing even more sad. The person in the bottom of the slide about made me jump out of my chair.
Something with this much history should be preserved.
It’s a wonder why all these things were just left behind.
This place just has a feeling of neglect and decay about it. I would feel uneasy walking through here.
I can’t say I’m sorry these are closed. They weren’t games of skill, they were games of how much money they can rip you off for.
Carnival food is some of the best in the world.
It’s amazing that all this stuff has just been sitting here for years now.
